This article was originally featured on Livestrong.com. Adventure is out there! It’s time to use that PTO and take a much-needed vacation. Whether you’re a domestic diva, an international itinerant or an aimless wanderer, there are endless adventures around the world just waiting for you. We asked some of Instagram’s most influential travelers to share their favorite vacation destinations for adventure junkies. Here’s what they said.
“From the ruby-red deserts to the moonlike landscape, the lost city of Petra to floating in the Dead Sea, Jordan is an epic location for adventurers. In Petra you can explore the more than 2,000-year-old rose-red city. In Wadi Rum, you can go four-wheeling, ride in a hot air balloon and camp in a landscape similar to Mars. If you’re a diver, head down to Aqaba to dive the depths of the Red Sea. As Jordan isn’t even half the size of California, it’s easy to drive between the adventurous locations.” —Collette and Scott Stohler, founders of @roamaroo
“Iceland has something to offer every level of adventurer. For those who enjoy hiking, glacier climbing or flying in helicopters over active volcanoes, the natural landscape of the island opens countless opportunities for the thrill junkie! I’ve traveled to Iceland on two different occasions and have always found something new and exciting to do. My most memorable adventure was diving the Silfra Fissure — the gap between the North American and Eurasian continents!” —Kiersten Rich, creator of @theblondeabroad
3 THE PHILIPPINES
“With more than 7,000 islands to explore, the Philippines is an adventure lover’s paradise. Some of the most amazing diving in the world can be found here — from swimming with giant whale sharks to visiting sunken WWII warships. On land, you can hike otherworldly places like the Chocolate Hills in Bohol or explore the one-of-a-kind Palawan Island. With so many islands in the Philippines, this amazing country could fill an entire bucket list of an adventure lover. Our personal favorite is El Nido. It definitely belongs on the list.” —Hannah and Adam Lukaszewicz, founders of @GettingStamped
